(DALIANNEWS)- The port city of Dalian was approved to import Crassadoma gigantea by the fishery and fishing administrative management bureau, Ministry of Agricultural, China, several days ago.
According to the report, it is the first time for China to introduce this kind of scallop variety.
Crassadoma gigantea species are widely distributed along the Pacific coast of America from the north to the Mexico Bay in the south.
The international market price of Crassadoma gigantea is more expensive than that of Patinopecten yessoensis.
The newly-introduced Crassadoma gigantea species will promote the scallop cultivation development in Dalian and also the supply-side structural reform in fishery industry.
It will also solve the problems of single variety, degradation of germplasm and frequent disease in scallop cultivation.
